Why serve refried beans from a can when you can make them yourself?

This simple recipe swaps in black beans and serves up some diced jalapeño kick!


1 tbsp Smart Balance® Original Buttery Spread
1 tbsp Smart Balance® Cooking Oil
1/4 cup onion, diced
1 jalapeño chile, diced
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth (or vegetable)
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Optional Toppings:
queso fresco and diced scallions


Melt the buttery spread with the oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

Add the onion and jalapeño and cook until golden, about 3 minutes.

Add the beans and chicken broth. Cook over medium heat, frequently mashing halfway through, until the beans thicken, about 10 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper and serve.

Duh, who wouldn’t. But, but it does deserve at least asking, what’s the catch?

Some weird, only eat cabbage soup for two weeks or stand on your head for 2 hours every day?

Nope, nothing quite so strange and really nothing that is over the top and obviously a gimmick.

I will say though, that this really is geared toward men, but it all makes sense.

So, why not give it a shot?
